[ARCHIVED] Join the World's Largest Digital Book Club

You're invited to participate in the Big Library Read — the world's largest digital book club that connects millions of readers around the world with the same e-book at the same time through public libraries.

For a two-week period from June 23-July 7, 2016, King County Library System cardholders are invited to borrow and read eBook "A Murder in Time" by Julie McElwain.

Visit to be part of this worldwide virtual book club. There will be no waitlists for this popular mystery-with-a-twist — everyone will be able to read it right away.

"A Murder in Time" is an intricate mystery about a brilliant FBI agent who finds herself transported back in time to the 1800s. Relegated to the servant class, she stumbles across a gruesome murder, and she alone recognizes there is a serial killer in their midst. She scrambles to solve the case before it takes her own life — 200 years before she was born. At its core, McElwain's debut novel is a puzzle, a hunt for a murderer and a quest for justice.

Big Library Read is a free program. To get started reading, all you'll need is a KCLS library card and a digital device for your download. "A Murder in Time" can be read on all major computers and devices, including the iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets, Chromebook and Kindle.

The e-book will be available with no wait lists and will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, so there are never any late fees.

Big Library Read is made possible through a partnership between KCLS, OverDrive and Pegasus Books, publisher of "A Murder in Time." The title was selected based on a survey of more than 20,000 library readers.
